As a major European association dedicated to pursuing excellence in liver research and in providing education to all those interested in hepatology, EASL also promotes research and education through the sharing of research findings in hepatology. To mitigate the difficulties faced by researchers in our field, the EASL Governing Board created the EASL Registry Data Collection Grant.
Funding provided by EASL is intended to help consortia groups dedicated to data gathering with specific focus on liver disease. A total of €100,000 will be awarded to support one or more consortia groups.
Following the arrival of COVID-19 vaccines, data on safety and efficacy of these vaccines in patients with liver diseases are needed. In order to promote collection on data on this topic, the EASL Governing Board has extended the deadline for application for the 2021 EASL Registry Grants until 19 January 2021. Applications for registries focused on COVID-19 vaccines and patients with liver disease are strongly encouraged.
